Welcome to the Roberti Community House!

Encouraging the best in ourselves, our neighbors, our community.

The Roberti Community House (RCH) is a 501(c)3 non profit organization located at 919 8th Street in Waukegan, Illinois. The RCH is intended to be a gathering place, a safe haven, where neighbors of all ages can come together to develop and share their skills and talents and celebrate their successes.

We started one of our earliest programs, the Junior Green Youth Farm, by knocking on doors, introducing ourselves to families in the neighborhood, and inviting their children to help us farm the raised beds at the back of the house. We’re still trying to differentiate the plants from the weeds – but we’re getting much better! Learning together, growing together and supporting one another form the cornerstones of the community house.

We are steadily evolving – joined by new partners, introducing new programs and expanding others. For instance, one cooking class has now increased to three and our after-school programming has expanded to two afternoons a week and has led to a lending library as well as a summer reading program.

A dedicated and creative group of volunteers facilitate all of our programs. Their enormous talents have been a major factor in our success. As a non-profit organization our needs are many and we rely on the generous support of volunteers and donors. We’d love to have you join us – please drop by the community house, see our programs, and meet our neighbors!

Thank you Carol Gildar for teaching us about water colors today. Watercolor painting is a creative outlet that allows for happy accidents that can turn out pretty cool.
